What I Do
I have been an avid fly fisherman for over 20 years now. I got my start in fly fishing on Au Sable River in Grayling during the summers. My love for the sport grew even more, when my family became members of the Pere Marquette Rod and Gun Club, which is located on four miles of the Pere Marquette River. The passion that I have for fly fishing followed me through college where I achieved degrees in Business and Marketing. I was the treasurer of the student chapter of Trout Unlimited.
I have been professionally guiding on the Pere Marquette River for over 6 years and the Muskegon River for 2 years now. In addition to guiding in Michigan, I have guided in Alaska from June to September for 3 straight summers. Freshwater fishing takes up most of my time but I am very enthusiastic about saltwater fishing. I am qualified to instruct in fly casting, fly tying and rod set up.
I have a laid back personality with a competitive side. My goal for my clients is to provide the experience they desire. For example; some want a high volume of fish while others want to wait for that trophy fish; others want a nice float on the river while improving their casting skills. I customize each trip for the desired adventure. With every client my ultimate goal is to provide an unforgettable experience, while watching clients enjoy spending time on the water. I have a large group of fisherman that fish with me every year, however I am always looking to expand my business so new clients and referrals are always welcomed. I look forward to fishing with you. Remember the wind is your friend!
I have a Master Captain’s License and Insured. In addition I make a GREAT SHORE LUNCH!
